Grand Hotel Cocumella

Grand Hotel Cocumella

Sorrento is a mythical place. It is called the Land of Mermaids for a reason. The Grand Hotel Cocumella, the first five-star hotel on the peninsula (since 1777), shares in the myth. The former Jesuit convent, high on a rock, has always seduced artists, scientists and politicians. Its large garden full of exclusive trees and plants is certainly an asset. And why not book a trip on the authentic 1880 sailboat at the hotel's disposal?


Caractère clients receive water and fruit in the room on arrival. For newlyweds, a bottle of Prosecco is placed in the room.
